Making a Difference with CPAP

Making a Difference with CPAP

My name is David Schneider.  I have worked in numerous departments at Aeroflow Healthcare, Inc., including Patient Care and Mobility.  During my time as a Patient Care Representative, I helped our patients overcome sleep and respiratory issues, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Hypoxemia.  During one encounter with a patient, I was explaining the use of CPAP therapy to help alleviate the symptoms of OSA.  The patient told me that he had been unable to get a good night sleep for the last 10 years of his life!  I was in awe of his situation and I envisioned what my life would be like if I was unable to sleep at night.  I notice the effects of sleeplessness after one night of insomnia, such as feeling groggy and having a depressed mood.  It is hard to imagine what life would be like without sleep.

After listening to the patient’s situation, we discussed CPAP therapy; the only reliable treatment of OSA, aside from significant weight loss or other lifestyle modifications.  The patient agreed to try the CPAP therapy to treat his symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  A few weeks passed and I spoke with the patient again.  He was elated by the success of the CPAP therapy and told me he had finally been able to get a good night sleep for the first time in 10 years!  I felt extremely grateful to be able to help this patient whose life was forever changed due to Aeroflow’s commitment to helping our patients lead more productive lives.  It is stories like these that underscore the importance of the job that we do on a daily basis.  I am proud to be part of a team that is so dedicated to helping the lives of our patients.
